Additional Details

We want to remind those with suppressed immune systems and pregnant women that a parasite sometimes found in cat feces can cause toxoplasmosis. Please wash hands thoroughly after handling used cat box filler. Encouraging your cat to use an indoor litter box, or properly disposing of outdoor cat feces is beneficial to overall water quality. Please do not flush cat litter in toilets or dispose of it outdoors in gutters or storm drains. Used litter is not recommended for garden use. Store in a dry place.

  • Select an appropriate litter box. There should be enough room for your cat to comfortably turn around in. Fill the litter box to a depth of 2 to 3 inches, with plenty of pellets for pawing and covering. Remember that Yesterday's News paper cat litter is different than clay cat litter. Having the litter too deep will make it more difficult to find and remove the soiled litter.
  • Liquid waste is absorbed from the bottom of the pan. It takes a few minutes for all the liquid to absorb.
  • Remove the soiled pellets when they have absorbed the liquid and have fully expanded in size.
  • Scoop solid waste from the top of the litter box daily.
  • Replace the litter weekly.

Some cats switch from one litter type to another easily. Others require a transition. When possible, give your cat the opportunity adjust to Yesterday's News® prior to surgery.

  • Week One: Mix 1/3 Yesterday's News® with your current litter
  • Week Two: Mix 1/2 Yesterday's News® with 1/2 current litter
  • Week Three: 100% Yesterday's News®

  • Easy to work with

    By on

    I love that it's bio degradable and I can put it in the toilet instead of the trash can. I have one diabetic kitty that is 17 and a side effect of diabetes in kitties is they always feel thirsty....ie they pee like a river. I am still on the fence how I feel about it. It does a great job absorbing but I wish maybe a little better on odor control. I think I am going to get the arm and hammer baking soda that helps completely mute the smell so I can have the best of both worlds. Eco friendly, easy to clean, and no smell.

    I absolutely love this litter. At first, my cats didn't understand or know how to use it. It took quite a while before they realized what it was and when they did, they choose it over the tidy cats litter almost every time. I'm so happy with how much easier and cleaner this litter is compared to the tiny granules left behind from the tidy cats litter. I highly recommend this to anyone with kitties and who doesn't want the dusty litter that gets everywhere! This is definitely something I'll keep buying!

  • The only kitty litter I EVER buy

    By on

    LOVE this litter, works great, no need for perfume since I clean the box daily. Normally with regular cat litter, there are more cons than pros. But with Yesterday's News, you get the added benefits of no more gritty granules of clay in your carpet, no little rocks getting into things and under your feet, even after you think youv'e swept it up, there is always gravel left over. Not with Yesterday's News.Not to mention that your cat doesn't have to inhale the dust that she stirs up when using regular cat litter, which often has perfume added and is horrible for her health. Buy Yesterday's News instead, and notice how much your cat appreciates it.

  • Read all about it!

    By on

    I hate the clumping clay litters and I have a wheat allergy so I have been leery of some of the non-clay based litters. I remember back in the day that mom would line her litter boxes with newspapers, and I thought, what the heck let's try it. This was amazing. There isn't any tracking. I scoop out the disintegrated stuff at the bottom once a day and it doesn't smell much at all. No dust. And both my kitties had no problems using it right away. I love it!

  • Pretty awesome but a few issues

    By on

    I feel amazing about helping the environment with this product my cats love the pellets and it works wonderful with my easy breezy tidy cat litter box but unfortunately the pellets are very long and do not fall through the litter box scooper, so most of the time I find myself having to dump out of the whole entire litter box when I change it once a week thank God this bag is so big but it is a slight inconvenience

  • Only kind our cat doesn't track all over the house

    By on

    Be careful to follow directions about making the change gradually. We didn't, and the cat wouldn't use his box for awhile. He's very old and has urinary tract issues, which resulted in the clay kinds sticking to his feet. That's no longer a problem. Only thing I don't like is that it's hard to know when the box has been used, as the wet stuff is at the bottom. Also go through it kind of fast because it doesn't clump..

  • Price is lower than other locations

    By on

    the price is lower than Pet Smart, and product comes right to your door. I ordered multiple bags of this product, and other products at the same time - it saved me the time to select the product from store, line up at cashier, carry it to the car - load in the trunk without ripping the bag, get it from the car to the elevator and bring it up to my unit. Will order again.

  • Wonderful litter

    By on

    Our vet recommended this litter after our fur angels were declawed. It was evident within a short period of time how awesome this litter is. Less mess and less odor allows us to spend more quality time with our sweet kitties rather than cleaning. Our kitties love it which is also a bonus ...Being made from recycled newspapers makes me feel better about this purchase.

  • Yesterday’s news, today’s litter

    By on

    We were previously using another brand of paper litter and decided to switch to this one so we could have it delivered, although we use it for guinea pigs, the odor control is supperior to what we used previously. My only complaint is not on the product however the shipping. A big box of dog food was shipped on top of it and it ripped and spilled all over the box.

  • Paper pellets for kitty

    By on

    This recycled paper formed into pellets for the litter box is absorbent and does the job. No odor, easy to clean out. We toss it on the compost pile and let the snow and rain finish dissolving the pellets. It has an understandably odd smell when used. A good use of recycled paper. But when it is gone we'll return to pine pellets.
